Why the 10th Indian Auto Expo 2010 will attract such a large crowd?

Despite being cut short by two days, organizers are expecting the upcoming 10th Indian Auto Expo 2010 will be the biggest in the world in terms of number of visitors. In 2009, thirty large auto shows were organized around the world. Most of these shows were held in the U.S., Europe and China. The New York Auto Show which was held in April, 2009 saw 1.2 million visitors. The Shanghai Auto Show, the third largest autoshow in the world had 6,00,000 visitors.

Pawan Goenka, President, Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) and President, Mahindra & Mahindra said that the 2010 Auto Expo will be bigger, brighter and better than the previous shows. The growing number of visitors shows India’s growing importance in the world auto market.

The New York Auto show goes on for ten days and it attracts a lot of crowd for it is located at the center of New York. It is also promoted as a tourist attraction. The Shanghai Auto Show goes on for nine days. The 10th Annual Indian Auto Expo which will be held at the Pragati Maidan in New Delhi will start from January 5th and end at January 11, 2009.

The major reasons behind such big crowd is India has a fast-growing car and

two-wheeler market and there are more room for growth because India has only seven car owners per 1000 citizens. Indian and China were two economies to observe the fastest recovery from the worldwide economic recession. This year, the top car and truck producers of the world skipped many major auto shows including the Tokyo Motor Show. Now, they are looking forward to participate at the 10th Indian Auto Expo 2010.
